Arif, Is there any chance of posting pictures of your gardens? Are your lilies planted with other flowering plants, or are they in beds of their own? You have some beautiful lilies and I hope the temperatures will stay cool enough for you to harvest some seed this year. The possibilities are endless. Regards, Susan

Hello Susan
Last year you also asked for it, here it is.

I am an old man in eighties and my passions are My Grandchildren, My Garden and Golf

My home is a garden; to give you an idea of my haven, let me take you on its tour without a time barrier.
The entrance

The porch

The drive

East face of the house

North face

North wall

North West corner

East boundary

Day lily bed

Crinum bed

Hippeastrum bed

Pancratium bed

Annual beds ( keep varying every year)

Some of my perennials

My Birds

And my companion, who shares my bed room, wakes me up before sun rise and forces me to go and sit in the garden, we enjoy the life, walking on the dew covered grass, admiring the flowers and listening to the birds, living free in the garden and the caged ones until the call for the breakfast.

Here are pictures of today,

I hope now you know me better
Love and Regards

RE: For Susan

Dear Arif, Many thanks for the tour of your gardens. I had no idea Pakistan was so lush and verdant; on a dewy morning the scents must be intoxicating. Aren't you a fortunate man to be living among so much beauty...and wise enough to be grateful for it. Regards, Susan

Your flowers are stunning. . . but what amazes me more is a man of your age being so tech savvy. . . my Grandmother is your age and she doesn't even know how to turn on a computer. . . keep the pics coming, so enjoyable.

RE: For Susan

Thanks for the tour of your beautiful gardens, and for including the photos of your animals, too. Everything looks so exotic and colorful. I love the photo of the annual beds. Please post more photos when you have the time.

RE: For Susan

Gorgeous. Do you know what variety of iris you are growing. Lahore is hotter than Houston so if you can grow, so should I. Again, gorgeous.

RE: For Susan

Dear Bossyvossy, Louisiana iris available in all colours is the most successful.
